The New Blyton Park circuit. 19th March

Postby NickD » Thu Feb 25, 2010 4:42 pm

If you have been to Blyton before, it's changed. New ownership and a new circuit. Over the next couple of years it will be transformed into a full motorsport venue.
Mazda on Track is lucky enough to be the first there and to prove the new circuit layout.

Limited to 42 cars on a full open pit lane day, so only 13 on track at once. We have a briefing room and service area for your gear and hot food and drinks on site.

Gaz will be there offering technical support to help set your car up and the Roddison Rocket is already booked in.
As always, if you need spare parts or even service items we can bring them with up on the day.

Come and have some fun, we have the sunshine on order.

Unfortunately not Greg, you can't mix open wheel and closed for various reasons. You will need a test day for that. Mallory runs test days either Wednesday or Thursday every week day. I think they have just started again this year. You need an ARDS licence for test days.

Update

This day forms part of a 12 to 18 month process to transform Blyton from what it was into a quality motorsport venue. The lease is now in hands of professional management and so anyone driving on this day will be in the vanguard of developing the track.
For anyone who has been to Blyton before or is looking at Google maps, it is not as it was, the whole site has been cleared, tyres, soil, debris and the Stock Car oval, so the runway is back to the full width.
The route of the track is not final, but the basic layout that is currently planned will be that the hanger, which is the white building on the left, is the garage, service, pit area. The track will run up the perimeter road, across the top of the runway, down the far side perimeter track turning left at the bottom and then left again through what was the Stock Car track then up the runway, turning right just after the hanger and then back round. "Features" will be added to this and a good base reference would be Snetterton meets Bedford.
Currently already in place is a Race Control building and briefing room, which was a custom made Twickenham ticket office, temporarily there are a couple of containers for putting stuff in under cover that you don't want rolling around in your car and the hanger acts as an under cover service area. Hot food will be available on site and naturally there will be medical cover etc.
The majority of the track is tarmac, there are some rough areas, but obviously the track will be routed to miss them, and is 10 times better than Finmere. Once the layout is proved then new tarmac will be going down, a local Navvy has already said he has 800 tons of tarmac he over ordered for a job up the road. Safety wise there is one piece of Armco but other than that, if you leave the back stuff the only danger is a couple of carrots.
As an indication of what the plans are, the owner has been working two and a half years on the planning permission which is now in place. I think this is very exciting, a motorsport venue that is bucking the current trend to have more and more restrictions imposed, build eco towns on them or complain that they are not "green" and to be able to influence at an early stage how this develops is fantastic. Who knows, it could end up with "Phoenix Corner!, or even Davie's Off!"
The noise limit is 105dB and if you email me at nick.dougill@mazdaontrack.co.uk I can send you a £10 discount code.

If it wasn't a Friday, I'd really be up for this seeing as though Blyton is only about 4 miles from where I live.....

Will definitely be watching for any future dates..

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you send the wall across the field once you've hit it.

Right Boys and Girls, £3,000 of cones and curbs arrived today and a fleet of Road Sweepers on Monday, probably the first time Blyton has been swept in 30 years. There is also a team armed with concreet filling in pot holes in the tamac, and we have been promised a hair pin where you can spin off to your hearts content in safety.

Two other great bits of news

You can now book this for £60 see here Phoenix Fives Special.
Worth a sickie in anybodies book!

and this

Hi Nick,



Thanks for this. I will be delighted to take you out in the lambo (there is now a pic of it on the website with the resident lambo tractor-really!!). In fact you are welcome to drive it.
